The Ferrari 625 Trc Spider: winning beauty

Ferrari 625 Trc Spider Scaglietti del 1957

Only two Ferrari 625 Trc Spider Scaglietti were manufactured in 1957.

These two examples of breathtaking beauty are some of the most gorgeous cars ever made by Ferrari, according to the brand’s historian, Richard F. Merritt.

One of the two vehicles was purchased by the Austrian-origin, American pilot John Von Neumann, famous for importing European sports cars to the United States and for founding the California Sports Car Club.

Between 1957 and 1959, Von Neumann drove the mighty 625 Trc in many races – Pebble Beach, Pomona, Hawaii and Santa Barbara, to mention but a few – earning three podiums and two victories.

Despite those successes and the ones that would come later, the real triumph remains its beauty.
